Apple is the epitome of pioneering tech. They produce a flurry of devices including iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, iMacs, iWatches, Apple TV, Apple HomePod & more accessories.

But as you know, Apple always follows tight rules to keep their devices away from third-party customizations. Therefore you cannot use Apple products as you intend. You’re made to always obey the restrictions imposed by Apple if you have the intention to use their products.

So, most users now tend to jailbreak their devices to grab their full potential. Currently, there are many jailbreaking tools to achieve the goal. But, one of the many advantages of jailbreaking is to gain the ability to install apps and tweaks that are not available on the App Store.

Thankfully, third-party app stores such as Cydia offer lots of free software, making it the primary reason for jailbreaking. In addition to this purpose, users hope to unlock their devices to use multiple carriers and customize their devices after jailbreaking.

If you would like like to use WhatsApp on your iPad, you have to install it from a third-party source. Because there is no official WhatsApp application in the App Store for iPads. Since Whatsapp is a very popular instant messaging system most users love to have it on every device they own. That said, there is yet a way to download WhatsApp on iPad.
